Watch: “Certified Trap: Episode 1”

09.04.12 5 years ago 9 Comments

Certified Trap: The Documentary is a web series that will educate the masses (with the help of LiveMixtapes and Mad Decent) on the blossoming romance between trap-rap and electronic dance music (EDM).

In the first episode, the narrator examines the seemingly unexpected relationship (which actually makes sense after watching), but not before DJ Scream explains the origins of the “trap” subgenre as we have all come to know and love it today. To assist in tracing the sub-genre’s origins, Episode 1 includes appearances from Trap-A-Holics, Flosstradamus, Daniel Disaster, Drumma Boy, Waka Flocka Flame and Mike Will, among many others.

As the narrator mentions, the sheer amount of trap-influenced music is doubling by the day, and Scream’s discussion about it offers plenty of interesting insight for fans of both genres.
